The Breadwinner
by Deborah Ellis (Series)

In war-torn Afghanistan the Taliban have decreed that women and girls are not allowed to leave their homes without a man. Outside their homes they must be completely covered by a long, tent like garment with a veil over the face and girls can no longer go to school. After her father's arrest 11-year-old Parvana must disguise herself as a boy and find work so that her family can survive. Grades 5-7 You may also enjoy Words In The Dust by Trent Reedy.
